International Travel Update

In response to the continued spread of COVID-19, nations around the world have established various types of travel restrictions from certain other nations in an effort to combat the virus.

For citizens traveling to foreign countries, you can read the Department of State’s worldwide travel advisories here. For up-to-date information related to travel requirements for U.S. Citizens and foreign visitors entering the United States, click here.

Please note that my office is unable to assist constituents in circumventing travel restrictions or requirements set forth by the United States government or by foreign governments. I regret any hardship and inconvenience that may be endured by travelers regarding these restrictions. I urge all travelers to be aware of the most up-to-date requirements that are applicable to your intended travel before departure.

Information Regarding Uniting for Ukraine

On April 21, 2022, President Biden announced Uniting for Ukraine, a new streamlined process to provide Ukrainian citizens who have fled Russia’s unprovoked war of aggression opportunities to come to the United States. The process provides a pathway for Ukrainian citizens and their immediate family members who are outside the United States to come to the United States and stay temporarily in a two-year period of parole. Ukrainians participating in Uniting for Ukraine must have a supporter in the United States who agrees to provide them with financial support for the duration of their stay in the United States. The first step in the Uniting for Ukraine process is for the U.S.-based supporter to file with USCIS a Form I-134, Declaration of Financial Support. The supporter will then be vetted by the U.S. government to ensure that they are able to financially support the individual whom they agree to support.

If you would like to make a donation to support those affected by the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, please visit: https://www.cidi.org/disaster-responses/war-in-ukraine/
